Amilla's New Café Nourishes the Mind, Body and Soul

Luxury Maldives Resort Unveils Dining Venues That Blends Wellness Cuisine and Comfort Food

Maldives, Baa Atoll, Northern Province. August 17, 2020

A brand-new dining venue has been created at Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences aimed at feeding guests' souls. Whatever the definition of that means to guests, they'll be able to find something to delight and nourish them - from immunity-boosting juices to classic comfort food like slow-cooked chicken broth.

The Amilla Islanders created Chill'd alongside many other exciting new projects while the resort was temporarily closed due to the pandemic. It officially reopens in October but private stay guests arriving from this month (July) onwards can have a sneak preview. Chill'd is - as the name suggests - a laid-back and breezy affair by the main pool. The pavilion is open on three sides so guests can admire the tropical views in practically every direction. Guests can kick back and relax at Chill'd whilst digging their toes into the traditional Maldivian sand floor or take their order with them to enjoy meters away on the beach.

The menu has been carefully crafted to nourish guests' bodies, minds, and souls as well as to showcase some highlights of Amilla's pioneering Wellness Your Way (WYW) concept. The WYW initiative is aimed at ensuring every guest, no matter what their dietary preference or ‘eating lifestyle' is, will be able to easily find an abundance of cuisine and drinks they can enjoy. From low carb to vegan, guests will always be able to find a huge variety of options at Amilla to suit their preferences, whatever they may be.

The café also champions Amilla's Homegrown@Amillaand Homemade@Amilla programs, which strive to grow and create the freshest of ingredients right there on the island. Popular comfort food has not been overlooked either - and free daily ice-cream is available for everyone between the hours of 2 pm and 4 pm every single day. Our official reopening in October. Chill'd is opening for a private stay guests before then.

One of the most unique and distinctive elements of the menu is an extremely extensive array of fresh juices, smoothies, homemade sodas, and kombucha. They include delicious ingredients that not only taste fantastic but also help support guests' dietary and wellness goals, such as immunity-boosting juices or low carb pick-me-ups. The ‘Kombucha and More' range of homemade sodas provide a probiotic boost, such as fresh ginger and lemon peel Earl Grey kombucha or living lemonade which is Lacto-fermented with whey produced from the island's homemade yogurt.

Highlights of the cuisine include delicious vegetarian summer rolls, trio of maki, and a vast array of ‘Sandwiches Your Way', made on Amilla's homemade low carb bread, sourdough, vegan flaxseed roll, rye bread, pitta or traditional fluffy white sandwich bread. The ‘Salads Your Way' are equally enticing. Guests can choose between a huge array of vegetables including crunchy, fresh greens grown on the island such as mizuna, purslane, kulha fila greens, and topped with delicious ingredients such as avocado, halloumi, and smoked salmon.

For Amilla, the definition of contemporary luxury hospitality has to include catering to the wellness and dietary demands of today's guests. The Islanders have now created an even more sustainable and healthy addition for the island, guided by their ethos of conscious luxury, bespoke service, and playful experiences.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
